Welcome Beast. You didn't fill out your profile so I can't be sure exactly what your needs are or how much room you have. As good as the 4100 and maybe one or two other small saws are, there is a decent possibility you could pick up a good used saw on Craig's list for the same or less money. A friend of mine wanted to upgrade from his old Rockwell Beaver 10" saw to something newer. He offered it to me for $100. I took it. I already had a 90s model Unisaw but up till then I was using a cheap craftsman for a second saw. The Rockwell has either a 1 1/2 or 2hp motor compared to the 3hp my Unisaw has. I added an Accusquare after market fence to it and most of the time it will do almost anything the Unisaw will. So for under $400 you can get a saw that will cut circles around the 4100 or any saw like it. It may take some time but those deals are out there.
